Bulgur and Black Lentil Majadra


I created this recipe for a bulgur majadra for a friend whose kids disliked brown rice. This recipe has since become a family favorite in my house as well!



1 Cup Bulgur large grout

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Onion Chopped

1/2 Cup Black Lentils

1 Teaspoon Cumin

1 Teaspoon Turmeric

1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg

1 Teaspoon salt

Soaked golden raisins, optional



1. Place the bulgur in a bowl and cover with boiling water for 30 minutes.

2. Sauté the onion in the olive oil until soft and a bit caramelized.

3. Add the lentils and spices to the onions. Cover with boiling water and cook covered on a low flame for 15 minutes. Check the lentils for softness, if not ready leave them for 5 more minutes.

4. Add the Bulgur and cook for 5 more minutes stirring and blending the flavors. Check the lentils to make sure they are soft but retain their shape.

Add in the optional golden raisins here.
